The Supreme Court has declined to review an $8 million punitive damages verdict against Farmers Insurance Company of Oregon in a class action brought by policyholders, in Farmers Insurance Co v. Strawn. The Oregon courts found that Farmers failed to comply with Oregon personal injury protection (PIP) law and its policy contract by failing to pay all reasonable medical expenses it was required to pay. CCL’s Robert S. Peck, counsel of record for the plaintiffs/respondents, opposed review of Farmers’ petition, which asserted in part that it was denied due process because plaintiffs proved the reliance element of fraud on a class-wide rather than individualized basis. Petitioners were represented by Mr. Theodore J. Boutros of Gibson Dunn.
